Re: Blue Seas ACR/"Add a battery" kit
Installed this last year in conjunction with a new hi output alternator from Maine Sail, it's working great. Simple install and can do away with the 1/2/both switch.
In addition you need only wire your alternator output to one bank.. the ACR looks after charging both when appropriate. Quite satisfied with the whole arrangement. These things should be fused as recommended, that does add some cost to the installation but it's the safe way to do it.
